Shakespeare's home town + the City of dreaming spires + a drive across the Cotswolds


1) Stratford-upon-Avon: is all about William Shakespeare. His birthplace, home base and burial space are all on my walking tour. This very pleasant ancient market town is, in fact, full of Shakespeare related sights - all on our walk through the old town centre. We'll probably stop for a light lunch at one of Stratford's many cafe's.

2) The Cotswolds: is on our route to Oxford. We'll drive across the edge of one of England's famous rural areas, taking in some lovely old villages as we go. If time allows we may stop in Bladon to see Winston Churchill's grave.

3) Oxford: is the 'city of dreaming spires', medieval colleges and some rather significant old buildings. My walk will encompass the history, architecture and people - lots of people - who were made by Oxford and helped make its name.

Tour: Monday - Thursday only. This tour is done in the Jeep.
